Good news for Guns International IMO
Until the AG from the buyer's State hits them with a lawsuit to collect on all sales for the last year?...Geo
Probably applies to our for sale forum here on Doubdlegunshop as well...Geo
I retired as a CPA last month and based on my understanding of Guns International's marketing model I don't believe they have to collect sales tax because they are not involved as an intermediary in the sale. GI charges a fee to list the gun for sale whether or not the gun sells, charges no additional fee if the gun sells and the payment is directly between the buyer and the selling dealer.
If my understanding of GI's relationship to the sale is correct if they are responsible to collect sales tax then a newspaper is also responsible for sales through their classified ads.
Sales here are not subject to sales tax except directly to any seller who exceeds the number of transactions or dollar amount established by the various state implementation laws and thereby creates nexus.https://www.gunsinternational.com/sell-guns-online/membership-fees.cfm
